General instructions for configuring Sim-on-a-stick for multiple users inside a firewall.

Loading large OAR files: (This issue has been fixed for SOAS 0.73)

Some OAR files such as those at LindaKellie.com have assets over 1MB in size. To successfully load these the SQL database 'maximum allowed packet' size which by default is 1MB needs to be increased. (Source: Bugs section on page http://opensimulator.org/wiki/Inventory_Archives )

Edit the 'SERVER SECTION' of the my.ini file in the mysqlfolder to include max_allowed_packet = 16M

# SERVER SECTION
# ----------------------------------------------------------------------
#
# The following options will be read by the MySQL Server. Make sure that
# you have installed the server correctly (see above) so it reads this
# file.
#
[mysqld]
# The TCP/IP Port the MySQL Server will listen on
port=3306
max_allowed_packet = 16M
